Why is Maple Pecan popular in the fall?
The warm and nutty flavors resonate with the cozy feelings of the season. Plus, maple and pecans are often harvested in the fall, making them fresh and in abundance.
Can I use real pecans?
For the Elixir Mixer, it's best to use pecan extract or flavoring for a smooth beverage. However, you can garnish with some crushed pecans on top if you'd like!
Is there caffeine in this latte?
Yes, if you're using regular coffee or espresso. But you can always opt for decaffeinated versions if you prefer.
How can I make it dairy-free?
Simply substitute the milk with your favorite plant-based alternative like almond, oat, or soy milk.
